on days eight and nine, we took more pictures, because let’s be honest, newborns change every single day… i’m completely smitten with this boy’s chubby cheeks, double chin, dimple and those perfect lips.

as i write this post, i look at the almost four week old sleeping on my chest, and marvel at how much he has grown and changed in the past two weeks. i’m seeking to savor every snuggle. every new expression. every moment. before he grows and changes again tomorrow. it all just goes by oh. so. fast.

after photographing her beautiful mama’s belly, i couldn’t wait to meet sweet baby ella. after a good feeding, she was good to go and slept like an angel for me all morning long. her sweet smiles at the very end of our session ended up being my favorite images from our time together. little one, papa and mama are smitten with you.

2014-09-17_0010.jpgi have the privilege of working with some of the most stunning mamas-to-be. there is nothing like that sweet season of anticipation before a couple grows their family. my evening with blake and suzel lucked out with the magical light of the golden hour. this session ended up being one of my favorites of the year so far… check back in tomorrow for our session celebrating baby ella’s arrival!

I met up with the G family on a hot summer day in June. The kids were such troopers with the heat. I loved capturing the playfulness of the boys and their sweet little princess. And those blue eyes of theirs! Gorgeous! It’s my firm belief family sessions should be relaxed and fun. Our morning together was just that…

2014-09-12_0022.jpgI’ve been photographing for the V family since miss Alix was a tiny newborn. I photographed her first year and we’ve met up annually since then. It was such a joy to welcome their second little girl with them. I love seeing the settled peace that parents naturally have the second time around… And Alix makes a wonderful big sister. Baby Cobie is perfection. Looking forward to seeing her again at six months!
